Our activities

Welcome to our musical world of intimate and intense emotions. The immense talent of our guest musicians celebrates music and “re-enchants the world”. This is our stimulator.

 

For the past six years, we have worked with passion to bring music to life, as we like to hear it, providing talented musicians with a stage and offering the audience musical and artistic excellence.

 

The programs we are conceiving of will lead you, from masterpieces to masterpieces, to the source of an inexhaustible stream of sound, musical and spiritual richnesses.

 

Since 2014 we have received world-renowned musicians, unanimously greeted: Gauthier Capuçon, Sarah Nemtanu, le Copenhagen string quartet, Vanessa Wagner, Marie-Josèphe Jude, Anja Linder, Marion Tassou, Edgar Moreau, Cédric Tiberghien (our honorary president), the Psophos Quartet, the Wanderer Trio, A Filetta, Raphael Sévère, Théo Fouchenneret and Volodia Van Keulen in trio formation, Michel Moraguès, the Atlante trio ; Solenne Païdassi and Lilya Zilberstein

 

All the works performed on stage are doted with insightful comments and pieces of analysis you will find in the programs on sale at the beginning of each concert. In these programs relevant biographical information about the artists is also available enabling you to better know them before their musical on-stage performances.

In addition, whether you make the plea to meet our musical artists, this opportunity may be held at the end of the show.

Les Avant-scènes

« Young talented musicians under the sponsorship of the greatest artists ».

 

In line with our association’s objectives, we share the stage through the promotion of some young musicians in a prelude (“avant-scène”) to the great concert. This “avant-scène” is offered to reward some worthy and talented students at the CRDC (Conservatoire à rayonnement départemental de Cannes).

 

Under the patronage of the invited artists, the aspiring musicians who have been selected are rewarded for their works by performing a program tailored to their needs at the opening of each concert.

 

This exceptional opportunity to perform with an audience is an essential and highly stimulating exercise since partaking of their training and contributing to pave way of their musical futures.
